Bistrot La Minette To Host Movies Under The Stars For Area Francophiles This Summer, Starting Monday, April 30
Ben Franklin. Ernest Hemingway. Carrie Bradshaw.
Many Americans have crossed the Atlantic to live in France. This summer, there’s no need. Just head to Philly’s own French corner at 6th and Bainbridge Streets.
Bistrot La Minette’s popular “Movies Under the Stars” premieres this Monday, April 30 in the restaurant’s beautiful garden patio, satisfying Francophiles with authentic atmosphere, food, drink and film. Plus Catherine Deneuve, a few times over.
Foreign movie lovers (or those who are just curious) can take in Persepolis, Jules and Jim, Belle de Jour, Potiche, La Vie en Rose, The Birdcage, My Wife Is an Actress and many more, and they all feature subtitles — much to the relief of those who took Spanish in high school.
The film series runs April 30 through September, every Monday and Thursday at 8:30 p.m. and every Friday at 9:30 p.m.
The French flicks, paired with Chef Woolsey’s amazing food, the picturesque patio and some bubbly champagne, will transport guests to a different world, a la Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris.
Space is limited, so plan your escape accordingly.
